Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm fairly new at creating a server, but the biggest problem I am currently having at the moment is getting Usermin set up to be accessible from outside the LAN.

I talked to other people that use it and was told that all I need to do is type the url:20000 to access the login screen, but that doesn't work. I have also tried the ip:20000 and that doesn't lead to anything.

Instead I get the error message:

Error - Bad Request This web server is running in SSL mode. Try the URL https://hostname:10000/ instead. (where hostname is my server's hostname)

I know it must be a configuration issue, but I have checked all my settings and as far as I can tell I don't have the ports blocked anywhere. I have the correct ports forwarded on my router and my server firewall doesn't have the port block either.

Is there anything I am missing? Any help would be appreciated and I will add more information upon request. Thank You.

EDIT: Also to clarify, I have been trying both https:// and http:// without success. I have also checked my IP tables and the correct ports are being forwarded.

Gotta love when it's something simple...just overlooked.

I searched through all the configurations under 'Usermin Configuration' and found all I needed to do was change my settings in the ports and addresses tool. I feel like an idiot for missing it...but it happens.
